Wouldn't qua (nom. sing. fem.) be the right word instead of quae (which is plural)? Alexanderr 15:51, 11 Augusti 2006 (UTC)

Qua is ablative...these are relative pronouns which have the nominative forms (going across) qui, quae, quod. A relative pronoun is one which refers to a head noun in a previous clause. Ie, "The man, whom I saw." "Whom" refers back to "the man", as quae (nom sing) refers back to paeninsula.--Ioshus Rocchio 15:55, 11 Augusti 2006 (UTC)
Okay, I got mixed up (I thought that quae was only plural and not the nom. sing. for the fem. case. Alexanderr 15:58, 11 Augusti 2006 (UTC)
